Jackson Leads Blue Hose At Furman Intercollegiate
Freshman Samuel Jackson (Pelion, S.C.) shot a three-round score of 221 (73, 69, 79) to finish tied for 48th. It marked the second time this spring that Jackson led the team and set a personal best for a single round (69).
Sophomore William Sigg (Augusta, Ga.) recorded three birdies on the backstretch, and improved to finish tied for 67th at 224 (69, 80, 75). Junior Matt Sizemore (Richmond, Va.) had an up-and-down final round that saw four birdies, the most for PC on the day, as he ended tied for 76th with a score of 227 (75, 76, 76).
Sophomore Carter Davis (Spartanburg, S.C.) had the best final round for PC, going into the 17th hole at one-under. However back-to-back bogeys on the final two holes blemished a nearly perfect round. Davis ended with a three-round score of 228 (76, 79, 73) and tied for 86th. Redshirt senior Evan Phillips (Lexington, S.C.) tied for 93rd with a score of 229 (76, 77, 76).
Clemson established a new 54-hole tournament record at 26-under par en route to its third consecutive Furman Intercollegiate. Coastal Carolina's Sebastian Soderberg (-12) carded his third straight 68 to capture individual medalist honors.
The Blue Hose will next play at the Coca-Cola Wofford Intercollegiate from April 9-10 in Spartanburg, S.C. It will serve as their penultimate tournament this season.
